Small Business Resources: MPCA's Small Business Environmental Assistance Program

June 11th, 2007 by

If you operate a small business in Minnesota, be sure to check out the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s Small Business Environmental Assistance Program web pages. Included are general information pages on air, water, waste and clean up issues, a link to the Environmental Guide for Small Businesses in Minnesota, information specific for various sectors (including auto body and auto repair, dry cleaning, halogenated solvent cleaning, automotive salvage yards, chromium electroplating and anodizing, fiberglass fabricators, and wood finishers), links to related EPA initiatives, and archived editions of two newsletters–Small Business Enterprise, a quarterly newsletter published by the SBEAP that covers pollution prevention, compliance and training, and The Cross Link, a newsletter geared specifically toward fiber reinforced plastics (FRP) products manufacturers.

    Automotive salvage yards and auto body shops are definitely trouble spots for environmental pollution. Actually just about anything in the automotive industry has the capacity to be so. Not sure if all waste is managed properly because it is such a large industry.

    I ouldn’t agree more with Project cars above. Many of salvage yards appear to operate illegally and break environmental laws with impunity
